I’ve been a little out-of-commission lately, it’s the back that I’ve already PAMed about in a previous post. Sitting up straight with a pillow behind me is okay but moving my arms is not (rest forearms on desk to type), move with caution, do not bend frontward, backward or twist torso. Getting up or down from sitting or a reclining position is quite the process. Fuck I feel old, decrepit! What a shock it is to move about as per the ‘normal’ and suddenly be immobilized by muscles revolting, tensing, cramping and locking into place. And since it’s the back — well, everything shuts down. The back is SO important and I’ve been neglectful as I’ve aged. I’m paying for it. My only question is: if I behave myself and start a routine of stretching and strength training, will I become more limber? I don’t think I’ll ever return to be as flexible and strong as I was when I was younger, I don’t expect that but I hope — fingers crossed — that I can roll back this stiff and achey body back to something more workable.
